Name: Win32-junction-point
Version: 0.2.1.1
Synopsis: Support for manipulating NTFS junction points.
Description:
This package provides the ability to manipulate NTFS junction points as
supported by Windows 2000 and above. Junction points, along with NTFS hard
links and NTFS symbolic links, are a type of symbolic link that can be made
between folders existing on the same filesystem. Please read Microsoft
KB205524 [1] for more information on junction points.
.
Junction points have always been left undocumented in the Win32 SDK. The
Windows 2000 Resource Kit came with a command-line utility named linkd.exe
to work with them. Later, Mark Russinovich of SysInternals distributed a
replacement utility named Junction [2] which accomplished the same thing.
.
This source code is based on an article [3] and C++ library [4] written by
Mike Nordell at codeproject.com.
.
It is against Microsoft's recommendation to make use of undocumented API
features. Use this library at your own risk.
